Dede Is Dead

The death of a beloved pet is difficult to deal with, and even though we try to prepare ourselves, it always seems to come too soon. This is the story of a boy and his dog Dede, who passes away suddenly, leaving the boy alone with his grief. In the end, he learns that just because Dede is dead doesn’t mean that she is completely gone.
